Won’t miss Shep at all. Good riddance.
Bad time slot for Greta.
She puts everyone to sleep and 7:00 is far too early.
Actually Shep’s going to be breaking in on all the programs now, as I understand it, with ‘breaking’ news.
Greta is great!
She is one of the BEST interviewers on Fox!
Good for Greta, she is the best interviewer on any station.
Sean is on against 10:00 news on east coast, tough slot.
What about news show, is Shep doing news at 6:00?
Awwwwwww, how cute. All the employees at Fox News have their schedules and their lives turned upside down because Queen Bee Megyn Kelly demanded her schedule be changed to accommodate her new baby.. Awwwww, isn’t that special?
Has anyone seen the new Howie Kurtz media show on Fox? He’s a Leftie from the git-go and I’ve tried watching the show two successive weeks and tuned out after a couple of minutes each time. It seems to be all about social media which bores me stiff. Bring back the old Fox Newswatch!
Wish they could have moved Hannity to the “new” prime time: 2 AM.
As it stands, sounds like a nice, liberal lineup, followed by a clown.
When is he on? Weekends?
Kelly’s show is going to be called, “The Libtard Factor”
“Sean is on against 10:00 news on east coast, tough slot.”
Most news on the east coast is at 11.
East coast news is at 11.
Funny thing is while bumping Shep off of 7pm (he was boring) MSNBC took away Matthews 5pm slot.
Kelly is much easier to watch/listen to than Hannity is.
I couldnt take his whining at all.
Now she goes up againts Maddow.
I like Megyn, but she’s not that great, and I still can’t believe they’re giving her a whole hour in prime time!
I think they’ll continue their regular show with Bret Baier at 6, but Shep has an earlier hour, at something like 4 in the afternoon, that I think he’ll continue.
Since my job changed hours I haven't been watching Fox too much. I've pretty much been getting my news from Breitbart, FR , The Blaze and Mark Levin. It's amazing how I'm no longer distracted by celebrity gossip, stupid non-stories and other assorted "entertainment" from people like Fox 'n Friends, BillO and Sean Vannity.
Amen,Short and to the point.
I’m now dividing my time between The Blaze and Fox.
I only go to Fox now and then.
I am not a fan of Megyn Kelly. That is disappointing.
Agree 100%, Jon Scott was a better host with a better show.
Shepard gets to retain his early news show.
The one that airs at 2:00PM Central.
Greta is the most professional interviewer on TV
I actually like Greta’s show. Now I’ll get to see it more often.
O’really at snooze time is fine by me
SOCIAL MEDIA WILL BE THE END OF US ALL.
Should be fun when Obama gets imTWeeted for being such a dweeb
This nation has survived incompetents before, fingers crossed, we will again..
She does good interviews, and she’s a good person but she is naive to the max.
The two best interviewers and information sources in my book are Greta for interviews, and Katherine Herridge for national security-related news. Katherine is the most professional I've ever seen.
“Kelly is much easier to watch/listen to than Hannity is.”
I find her delivery irritating, like she’s putting on an act. Also I don’t sense any strong conservative core in her.
And yes Hannity can be monotonous, but I have no doubt as to what he believes.
So between the two I would pick.... either Judge Napolitano or Judge Jeannie Pirro.
They’re both awesome!
Jennifer Griffin is pretty damn good too!
So even though O'Reilly is a self-aggrandizing bore who devotes about 60% of the show to fluff to maintain ratings, I want to know how he appeals to moderates and undecideds whom he seduces into watching a show.
Judging the Fox hosts on this basis, I do not care whether O'Reilly is overbearing or Hannity becomes tedious or if Greta gets too deeply into the weeds (for my taste I wish all the Fox hosts would get more deeply into the weeds-but that is not my test or my goal) except in so far as those deficiencies cause them to lose battles in the propaganda war.
On the other side, O'Reilly has a knack for articulating an issue and he usually comes out on the right side-but of course not always. Hannity almost always comes out on the correct side, but he grinds away at it. Moreover, Hannity permits guests to talk over one another which is just as irritating as watching O'Reilly himself interrupt and talk over his guests.
Greta deserves credit as the most improved of the Fox hosts and one who exudes credibility. On the downside, she talks to much and she betrays a level of naïveté and a tendency toward goody two shoes which annoys me but which might be very effective with the female audience.
I'm not inclined to be personally happy about Megan Kelly appearing at 9 PM because I expect her to present a news show and I want to watch opinion at that hour. In any event she will be better at it than Shepard Smith and more conservative, although not necessarily reliably so.
The proof is in the ratings and Roger Ailes has demonstrated a knack for getting ratings and I therefore conclude that his hosts, compared to those on MSNBC, are persuasive.
Greta’s interviews are probably the best. I also like the fact that she often features Rush.
However, I do find her diction annoying:
senner = senator
prom = problem
congs = congress
terst = terrorist
Megyn Kelly is a FEMINIST cloaked in bleached hair and a fake smile. Every year her voice gets lower and lower. Soon she’ll be growing a penis, if she doesn’t have one already.
How dare she disrupt the schedules of the other prime time stars at Fox News because she wants more mommy time with her baby. Hannity gets displaced because Queen Bee Kelly had a baby? How dare Fox News rearrange time slots all because one of them had a baby?
Write, e-mail, and twitter to Fox expressing your opinion.
Ha you just made me lol..
What about ‘prolly’ for ‘probably’? LOL
“What about prolly for probably?”
Whether spoken or written, that one makes me grind my teeth.
Yep, Shep’s Drama Queen Alerts....
Shep is happy. The door hits him on the backside.
You’re right about there being no conservative core to Megyn Kelly. She is very pro-sodomite.
She is definitely not one of the Rush cult nor do I expect anything profound out of her, but she's entertaining to watch when she does the outrage at liberals over... skit.
Not bad looking either.
She can be fun to watch. She seems to know the law.
RE :”And yes Hannity can be monotonous, but I have no doubt as to what he believes”
Hannity appears to be braindead like he just repeats whatever Rush tells him, or writes him.
If he is the type of mindless Robot that we are supposed to be then libs have won and will always win.
I recall he was for a GM bailout early January 2009 under Bush, two months later under Obama he is against it.
I remember him using his show to pimp Steele for RNC head.
Hannity was a big GWB cheer leader, now with Obama he's against the stuff he used to be for.
Mindless GOP Robot
Herridge and Griffin .... when they come on, I drop what I’m doing and watch.
girl, boy, girl, boy...sounds more like a sixth grade dance than a prime time lineup. We’ll see what they do with the content of each show. Would have been more interesting to me to see greater in depth coverage of flyover country in the 10 pm ET slot, someone based in TX or CO doing more regional issues and political races for an hour.
Not really a fan of any of the four, don’t watch them now with any regularity, don’t see anything here that would provide a reason to tune in anytime but the extraordinary news day.
Although she has her admittedly rare moments I’m not a Megan fan.
That said how does getting to work in NYC, at probably 4PM, prepping, then being on air and wrapping up until at least 10PM, help with two young kids?
Yes, Sunday mornings here in the Pacific Time Zone.
